Research Directions

Location Privacy: practices, guidelines, and algorithms for the protection of personal geodata.

Geocomputation: extending traditional modelling algorithms to acknowledge spatial dependence & heterogeneity


Spatial Crime Analysis: forecasting crime events in space using spatial, statistical, and machine learning algorithms

Dynamic Population Models: based on areal interpolation techniques and geosocial media data


Urban Safety: understand and model the realities and perceptions of safety using geosocial media data, PPGIS, and sketch maps (related fields: Fear of Crime, Crime Perception Gap).
